Another question...senior moment!

I want to take soft stem cuttings of Euonymus, Sambucus etc soon. Do I need a special cuttings compost...never done it before! I have seed compost and vermiculite etc...but I'm guessing it's not those....but not ordinary compost?

Thanks again!



Seed compost and Vermiculite would do. Since the cuttings have no roots (yet!) like seedlings they do not need food (yet!).
